Didier Drogba inspired Chelsea to a 3-0 win over Arsenal and the Blues are now a short price to win their first Premiership title since 2005/06 – see all the outright betting here.

England’s bid to host the World Cup in 2018 has been boosted by the news that Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva is backing the campaign.

Plans to bring the finals to England for the first time since 1966 have been hit recently by resignations of key personnel and reports of in-fighting among the bid team.

But the Brazilian president has indicated his support, telling Channel 4 that ‘now is the time for the UK to host a Fifa cup again.’

His backing comes after Fifa vice president Jack Warner spoke positively about England’s bid.

Fifa are set to make a decision next December and England face competition from Australia, Russia, the US, Indonesia and Japan, as well as joint bids from Spain and Portugal and Holland and Belgium.
